Once a repair has been completed, can I replace the tile right away?

After completing a heated wire repair it is safe to replace the needed tile.  

When performing a repair of this type, you would normally use a flat trowel to apply the needed thinset over the cable and replace your tile.  Some may choose to ‘back-butter’ the tile on large format tiles 12′ or more, and fit them in place. Please note that a liquid adhesive can be applied to the splice and heatshrink as added moisture insulation in an effort to prevent any moisture in the thinset possibly interfering with the repair.

As always, do not turn on your system until the thinset has fully cured.
